Finally, the perfect note taking app!

Have been on the lookout for a good notes app for a while, before I stumpled upon Bear. I would encourage all mac users to give it a try, and see how it "just works".

It's so clear throughout the app, how the team is really professional, and consider every detail and decision. As a programmer, I find the markdown really familiar, and like improving productivity with shortcuts throughout the app.
The app is literally as I would have wanted it myself, if I was to make a notes app.

Developer Response ,

Many thanks for the lovely review and kind words, hope you've a nice day! ❤️🐻

Best note taking app I have ever tried

And I have tried a lot, but this one beats them all. Two features I'd welcome:
- By renaming a note, also rename all the links in other posts that reference this post
- Quick switch between notes using CTRL TAB and CTRL SHIFT TAB.

Very well done guys.

The greatest app ever

I have never in my life written a review on the App Store (shame on me). However, this app is so insanely great, that I had to do it. The devs behind bear simply gets how a great note app should be done. Simple, elegant and beautiful. An oh my god those nested tags. 5/5 would pay double of the current yearly subscription.
